Drama, Greece and its little secret

Since, I promised to write a little bit more about Drama, Greece, here it is. 🙂

I was promised a trip to Greece, and happily, my wish became true. I am thinking about the time, my boyfriend told me something like: “Yes, I would take you there(Greece)”, and what I’ve heard: “Your wish is my command”. Well, I don’t know, if indeed my wish was his command, but he did take me there, so I am just guessing…

We were half way to Kavala, Greece, and you know about my fascinating visits there from this – Kavala, Greece ❤ and this – Kavala, Greece and its heavenly beach , and we were about to enter Drama. Our original plan did not include stopping in the town, so we passed by. But, on our way back we decided to give it another chance.

It was very hot, and since the car doesn’t have AC, the windows were all the way down, and my head was outside of the car, you know like dogs do. After, we entered the town, I started exploring everything around, and with the excitement I get each time I am in a new place, I started taking pictures chaotically. Of course, as you can imagine, most of this pics, taken from the car, are not worth watching(as I don’t have another ones, I’ll add some of my not so good photos).  Anyway, i was amazed of the architecture. The buildings in Greece, are both similar, to the ones in Bulgaria, and different in a way.  I didn’t see high buildings – 6-7 floors tops. We drove by an incredible part of the city, may be something like suburbs, where the houses were low-risen, yet not small, with palm-trees in front, and lots of flowers on their porches. The streets were clean and the grass was cut. I leaned back on the seat and looked out the window, and felt like Ryan from the O.C., when he arrived in the new neighborhood.

We decided to make a break, so my bf can relax from the driving and I can walk around. The place we chose for this stop was Agia Varvara Park, and as I told you here – Agia Varvara Park in Drama Greece , you can read more about it (written from me) here – http://www.newsforshoppers.com/agia-varvara-park-in-drama-greece/36727332/ .

So, I consider, you’ve opened the links above, and read about the park. Let me add some things about it. I was a little surprised to see small kids jumping in the water, because it was not deep enough and the water was very cold. At the end of the park, there was a nice and, from what I saw, luxurious restaurant. Next to it, was a not so big reservoir, with a small cascades “coming out” of it.

Although, I didn’t spend a lot of time in Drama, I liked it, and I would for sure go back there.

Interesting fact!  “Archaeological finds show that in the area of the modern city there used to be an ancient Greek settlement named Dyrama (Greek: Δύραμα) or alternatively Hydrama (Greek: Ύδραμα), both meaning “rich in water”. ” – According to Wikipedia. And the name Drama, means in both Bulgarian and English, well you know, drama! 🙂

Have you been in Drama or another part of Greece? Share your thoughts or stories with me, I would love to hear from you! 🙂
